Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s Psalms for Living is taken from Psalm 37:27-28   27Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever. 28For the Lord loves justice; he will not forsake his saints.

Why did God choose to have the Psalmist include these verses in his writings? Mark believes they are a good reminder to us that there is definitely evil in this world, but there is hope that the world is also good!

God Himself his a moral being. God did not make evil. Evil exists as that which is not God. Mark writes of several metaphors in the Bible that describe God’s morality. Listen as Terry reads from today’s devotion.

with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)

Part 2

Mark Lanier is back with another “Why I Am Not a Jew” lesson! Mark will be discussing more about the history and laws of Judaism this week.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Today, Mark Lanier focuses on Genesis 12:1-3 1Now the Lord said to Abram, 'Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you. 2And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 3I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.'”

These are very important verses for several reasons. Listen as Mark gives an English lesson on the word “Christianity”. What does each part of the word actually mean and how is it broken down from Greek and Hebrew?

So, how do these verses and the meaning of Christianity tie into Judaism?  Mark uses Paul’s letter to the Romans as an example.

Finally, Mark looks at some of the roots of Judaism and how they compare to Christianity.

Discussed by Pastor David Fleming
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 2

This week, Pastor David Fleming’s sermon is entitled: “Preparing for the Storm” from the sermon series “The Gospel of Matthew”.  This sermon was presented on January 15, 2017, and focuses on Matthew 8.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

If you choose to follow Jesus, will you have a “storm-free life”?

If you choose to follow Jesus, will you be protected?

Yesterday, Pastor Fleming reminded us of the time when Jesus calmed the raging sea. This was a literal situation where the disciples could see the power that Jesus possessed. But why did Jesus calm the storm? He was not merely just saving their physical lives. Jesus wanted to illustrate how he could also save their souls. This passage is a perfect example of how following Jesus – no matter what – will always be better than sitting on the sidelines.

Pastor Fleming also lamented yesterday the first point in his sermon: Remember His Purpose. The second point is: Reflect on His Promises. Tune in tomorrow as he continues with the next lesson we can learn from this passage.

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
